Description

Australian-born, British-based journalist, John Pilger, has covered many of the world's major upheavals and his films have celebrated the victories of ordinary people against authority. They represent more than a quarter of a century of history, from the United States's war in Vietnam to the aftermath of Pol Pot's Cambodia; from repression in Czechoslovakia, East Timor and Burma, to continuing discrimination against the Aborigines in Australia. Throughout thirty years of documentary-making justice and human struggle have remained recurring themes. Now Anthony Hayward examines the journalist and his long career on the small screen, He details all the programmes, their effects and controversies, compares them with TV's other factual output and discovers how John Pilger defies the broadcasters' conventional notions of 'impartiality' and 'balance' to present a truth that is often unpalatable to authority.show more
